Regional Forest Agreements (RFAs) are 20 year agreements between state and Commonwealth governments that set limits on logging in public native forests. Under these agreements, intensive logging has decimated our forests including habitat of threatened species including the koala and vital carbon stores.
The agreements are up for review and the government has already committed to extending them before it has finished its consultation process. It is important that the community expresses its opposition of unsustainable logging and the need to protect what we have left. I will ask further questions in parliament and I encourage you to view environment groups’ submission guide to use to lodge your concerns.
Comments are due 23 February through the National Parks Association’s online tools HERE.
